  • Those with fair skin should stick to the above as well to keep from looking washed out. However, if you want to embrace your inner goth goddess, you can totally rock the pale skin/dark burgundy hair combo!

How to Color Burgundy Hair At Home

Pro tip 1: Unless your hair is really dark, you will not need to bleach it to dye your hair burgundy. However, if you know that your hair does not take color well, you might want to bleach it. Always bleach your hair at least 24 hours before coloring.

Pro Tip 2: Do not wash your hair or use product for at least one day before coloring it.

Step 1: Put on protective clothing and use some sort of drop cloth to protect your floor. Red hair dye can look like a massacre if it drips!

Step 2: Putting on your gloves, mix the hair dye and the developer according to the packaging instructions.

Step 3: Divide your hair into even sections.

Step 4:Apply the burgundy hair color evenly using a color brush. Start at the roots and work your way to the ends. Massage it in to make sure that it sets.

Step 5: Allow the hair dye to sit for at least 30-45 minutes.

Step 6: Rinse your hair with cool water until the water runs clear.

Step 7: Apply conditioner as instructed.

Step 8: Allow to air dry and do not wash your hair for 24-48 hours. Avoid using hair product during this time if possible.

Tips to Make Your Burgundy Hair Last

  1. Don’t wash your hair too frequently. Once or twice a week is fine, using only sulfate and alcohol free products. Dry shampoo and leave in conditioners are fine, as long as they are safe for colored hair. Coconut oil is a great leave in conditioner that won’t damage your hair.
  1. Do not swim with your hair unprotected. Always wear a swim cap to keep bleach from damaging the color.
  1. Wear a hat when you are outdoors to keep the sun from fading and drying out your hair.
  1. Avoid using heat on your hair as much as possible to help preserve the color.
  1. Add some hair color to your conditioner and leave it sit for 10-20 minutes once a week to rejuvenate your burgundy hair color.
